Star Fox 2 Programmer Overjoyed At Its SNES Classic Edition Inclusion

The SNES Classic Mini Doesn't Come With An AC Adaptor And It Really Doesn't Bloody Matter

However, the company didn't commit to producing shipments beyond the end of 2017, suggesting that it could be planning a limited run of SNES Classic production, much like with the NES Classic.

Officially titled the Nintendo Classic Mini: Super Nintendo Entertainment System, the miniature 16-bit system will come with 21 pre-installed games in total, including the never-before-released Star Fox 2.

The SNES Classic Mini launches on September 30th for $119.95. But with this weeks announcement of the Super Nintendo Classic Edition, it looks as if Nintendo is doubling down on a past strategy - even if it's still finding its footing in new areas, particularly mobile.

Nintendo's Super NES Classic is damn near ideal. It's no surprise then that the SNES Classic will be released in Europe differently than in the States.

However, there are doubts about "Nintendo's commitment to the SNES Classic after last year's debacle", says Engadget.

With "sold out" signs already popping up on SNES Mini listings at major online retailers, Nintendo is hoping to ease any worries that history will repeat the short term. On the Mini SNES, players will be able to unlock it simply by completing the first level of "Star Fox".

Other games featuring classic Nintendo characters are also bundled, like "Donkey Kong Country", "The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past", "Super Metroid", and "Yoshi's Island".

Cuthbert also programmed the first Star Fox, which was released in 1993 to critical acclaim, partially due to the game's 3D-esque graphics, which were revolutionary at the time.

eBay will let you select to "buy now" - although you're really only buying someone's pre-order.
